Apple TV Remote app reviews

  • This works just like the remote. I was hoping it would be better 2/5

    By Brainle55
    The remote for the Apple TV is clever. unfortunately clever is not always good. I just want a button to fast forward 30 seconds and a button to jump back 15 seconds. Why not have that in the app. You have no pieces to produce, no parts to mold all the designers had to do was just add some buttons to the app interface. Fast-forwarding with the regular remote is sooooo painful. Why not make the app a better experience. Disappointing.
  • Worst Apple app 1/5

    By X1JDV
    Seriously Apple I expect more out of you! I HATE this remote it’s impossible to scroll and actually land on what you want. Needs arrows to click on the scroll function is awful.
  • Doesn't work 1/5

    By clemency_fane
    Will not find my 3rd Gen Apple TV on same wifi. I finally just deleted it.
  • Never connects to Apple TV 4K 1/5

    By TitoM101
    I can never just open the remote app and use it. I’m always restarting both the Apple TV or my iPhone but ever since they both received their respective updates, I no longer have any luck with a simple restart. They just don’t connect. The iPhone reads that there is no Apple TV. Oddly enough the iPhone sees it as an AirPlay option.
  • Ugh 1/5

    By Sherianna1000
    This doesn’t work anymore ! Idk y but i hate it
  • Hardly ever works 1/5

    By Gina0229
    This would be such a great app if it would only recognize my Apple TV and work. When it does work (which is rare) it works really well. The only function that its missing is the volume. However, it 90% of the time doesn’t recognize my Apple TV, despite verifying that both devices are on the same network, restarting phone, rebooting WiFi, etc. PLEASE fix this!! The Apple TV remote that actually comes with the tv is so small and we are constantly losing it.
  • Still no volume control? Seriously? 3/5

    By Thuggish Nuggets
    The rest of the app is great and seems to work very well in our home. I appreciate the ability to add the Remote to the Control Center, I’ll bet that was a cool feature to implement. I’m still a bit confused as to why there are no volume control buttons in the app. That seems like a fundamental part of any remote. If it’s a UI crowding issue, I don’t mind! You could even make it show up only when it detects that IR isn’t needed to control the volume for the connected HDMI device or something.
  • Needs Private Listening Mode Like Roku Remote 3/5

    By projekZER0
    This remote works fine for me, but Apple is missing a huge opportunity with it. The remote the Roku comes with has a headphone jack built in. When you connect your headphones, the Roku box automatically breaks the audio signal out from the video signal and sends it to the remote and to your headphones via wifi. Now you can watch a movie late out night and not wake people up. Yes you can connect Bluetooth headphones to an Apple TV, but Bluetooth will not reach my Apple TVs in my audio closet where all my equipment for the house is stored. I need something on wifi like the Roku remote. If Apple put a private listening function in this App, I could plug my headphones into my iPhone which is on wifi and use it anywhere in the house. Please Apple, put a private listening mode in this App! It’s the only reason I still keep a Roku in my rack!
  • Works 10% of the time 1/5

    By Sarah.Ba618
    Can never “find” my apple tv box unless the box is powered on. Whats the point of a “remote” if you cant power on the box on with it??? Completely useless 90% of the time.
  • Add volume 5/5

    By Slimmz19989
    Add a volume botton
  • Got it to work once 1/5

    By Tex kat
    One time, I got it to work one time, not very good odds fellas, yes on the same network.
  • Doesn't work 1/5

    By Drew Lesueur
    On same wifi network as Apple TV, but won't connect.
  • GEN 1 READ THIS 1/5

    By Bcrtheman
    If you have a first generation Apple TV DO NOT UPDATE, I did without reading the update notes and now the app does not pair with my Apple TV any longer
  • Piece of Junk 2/5

    By Jrich83
    Barely functional with Netflix. Don't lose your spot in whatever you're watching because you'll never be able to get back to it.
  • Doesn't connect to ATV 3. 1/5

    By Shasta-101!
    Doesn't connect to ATV 3. My other phone apps have no problem connecting to my Onkyo receiver and Kodi media center on the same network.
  • Worst remote app 1/5

    By abscervan
    Too complicated. Sometime it works. Hard to connect
  • Audio Control please 3/5

    By LuRu19
    Why is there still no option for language changes for movie & other programs on Apple TV controller app or on screen. Please update & add this.
  • It just quit... 1/5

    By Erica66
    Stop working!! worked wonderful the 1st Time, I got the app. Please fix😤😤
  • Only detects Apple TV 50% of the time 1/5

    By HanMan5000
    Not sure why. Sometimes it works well, other times I have to use the remote because the app doesn’t detect detect my Apple TV.
  • Find a better one 1/5

    By RyRylees
    Not even that great when it’s working. Doesn’t even offer a keyboard for all the passwords you constantly must enter with Apple TV
  • Unreliable at best 1/5

    By MusicDude70
    Very finicky. Don't bother. Likes to require ATV reboots just to connect. Doesn’t work across subnets either.
  • Nice but 2 suggestions 4/5

    By kx11
    The remote app should have a button to find the remote. The direction of swipe/scroll on the remote should be reversible in the settings.
  • Boo💩💩💩 1/5

    By mrjones2890
    Doesn't work 3/4 of the time
  • Does not detect Apple TV 4K. 1/5

    By Victor Sobrado
    Does not detect Apple TV 4K.
  • Only helpful if lost remote for emergency use 2/5

    By cuttlemonkey
    Very slow response, always looses connection, if asked to continue / Still watching the remote is not recognized. Why did I install it?
  • It works, but that’s about it... 2/5

    The app does the job but definitely could be better and more interactive.
  • Not working 1/5

    By cat_nolan
    It was working until today and now it will not connect with my Apple TV. I tried turning my WiFi on and off, deleting and re-downloading the app, restarting my phone and my Apple TV, and it is still not working.
  • Buggy since iOS updates Fall 2017 1/5

    By MAX(R2D2)
    The app loses connection over and over again. Makes it difficult to use. I am disappointed.
  • Painful 1/5

    By Jmat8888
    Good luck scrolling through “home videos”. This app is like using a 28k modem. Brutal
  • Works...sometimes 3/5

    By Coco.o
    Overall it does the job, most of the time. A good 1/4 of the time is says it can’t find my Apple TV when it was just working the minute before. I even make sure they are on the same WiFi. Other small issue with the touch pad skimming over the selection too quickly or not moving at all. Better than nothing just a little frustrating at times.
  • Fail 1/5

    By Swingo
    Doesn’t work.
  • Stupid App, Its Garbage 1/5

    By Rain relic
    How am I suppose to plug in the code if I lost the remote. I cant get to settings if i don't have a remote that the point of getting an App remote. SMH... Garbage. I’ll give it one star for trying.
  • Needs work... 1/5

    By Dannyyboyy83
    The digital trackpad on my iPhone X seems not responsive at all. I wish there were setting where I could adjust the sensitivity. The counterpart to this application that installs itself onto my Apple Watch is absolutely terrible I wish it just had control buttons and not swipe the screen on the Apple Watch is too small to think you’re going to swipe as you would on the Apple remote or on your telephone. The Apple Watch counterpart does not allow for dictation input when searching or ten second fast forward and rewind which makes it impossible to ff or rewind.
  • Volume 4/5

    By Liv Branscome
    This app needs a volume button. That is the only down side but over all this is awesome.
  • Needs a lot of work 1/5

    By clouds46
    Apple TV remote is never online on the app, it always appears offline on app despite being on
  • Connection problems 2/5

    By Feeling-ripped-off
    The remote app pairs just fine, but then won't stay connected for more than 5 minutes. The app would be fine if it worked, but well, it's just flaky. I can also never turn the Apple TV on with the app unless it was just connected 5 seconds before putting the Apple tv to sleep.
  • Could be more convenient 1/5

    By jengemz
    Somehow this app decided to stop working and won’t locate my Apple TV even though it’s on same WiFi network and I’m standing right in front of it. I hate having to look for this tiny remote when I always have my phone on me. I even uninstalled app and reinstalled app. No luck!
  • Stopped Working 1/5

    By rkludlow
    None of my devices are able to use this app anymore with my Apple TV 4th Gen. it used to work fine but since updating to iOS 11 none will connect to it. Used to be great!
  • Doesn’t work on iPhone 6s iOS 11.1 1/5

    By awesomeyesplease
    Won’t recognize my 3rd gen Apple TV anymore.
  • Doesn’t work with the new update 1/5

    By Kaait
    I cannot control my app with either this phone app nor the version of this app for iWatch after the most recent iOS update. I did the troubleshooting recommended to no ends.
  • To the developers at Apple 5/5

    By Stonley890
    I have a Bluetooth karaoke machine that I use my music with and I makes some lyrics and saved them to my photos. The thing is, I can’t have the Apple TV showing the lyrics and have the karaoke machine playing the music at the same time. Either I can show the lyrics on the Apple TV and have it as the audio output, or I can use the karaoke machine output the audio. I want the Apple TV to show the lyrics while the Karaoke USA plays the music. And the thing is, is that it worked only 4 hours before. I hope this makes sense to you and, if you can, release a software update to allow this. Another bug I’ve encountered is when I was using iMovie. I tapped the share button and the icons came up. But I noticed the App Store icon looked like the iOS 10 version. I’m not too sure about the other icons, but the App Store one had the brushes with the circle. One more thing that I really don’t like is I can’t upgrade my iPad mini 2 to iOS 11.1.1. In fact, it stopped updating at version 9.3.5. It really upsets me. I wanted to use the dock and split screen. My sister’s iPod Touch is also not updating. If you need more info like model or serial number, I’ll be happy to share them. I really hope you can fix this. Thank you for your time. By the way, the Apple TV remote app is flawless.
  • not working 1/5

    it was working fine, but one day it stuck, so i decided to re-pair atv but it's can not be seen in the app. So now i can use airplay to see "Make sure you're on the same Wi-Fi network as your Apple TV." message on my TV though Apple TV mirroring and rofl from it, but even reinstalling the app won't help.
  • No longer connecting 1/5

    By CarterjayC
    I’ve had no problems until 2 weeks ago. I have a generation 2 Apple TV...the remote no longer recognizes or connects. PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE !! I’m laughing at the staged 5 star reviews that attempt to discredit actual users who have the same problem. Apple, it’s best to write a working app than to pay for people to defend a broken one. Do your job!
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By shawnzillapeace
    It will never connect to my Apple TV.
  • Love it! As advertised. 5/5

    By Mario Jerez
    I love the app. It works as advertised.
  • Crap now 1/5

    By Klprvhjtd
    Latest update my remote on the Apple TV made it crap developers go back to R & D and figure out.
  • Apple account 1/5

    By amilli628
    I absolutely hate that it continues to prompt me to sign into my apple account with the app. I don't want to and it asks every time I open the app to pause or play
  • Love Apple TV 5/5

    By Eatingyourapathy
    This App works great. I love having access to keyboard to type in search queries. Though, the swipe can be a little finicky. I really wish there were an iPad only version that mirrored the Apple TV menu. Then navigation would be much more conducive to the touchscreen.
  • Apple TV remote 5/5

    By Dj DMW
    I’ll give it five stars but there are times where it takes a while from the unit to recognize the Apple TV remote But once it does work it works, never had any major issue with it.
  • Don’t get the concept 1/5

    By hammondb3 organist
    If this is for the remote to control and Apple TV then why is it only set up to sync when you have a remote to enter digits to pair it to like Bluetooth?it should also have it where if you lost the remote it can just sync to it because all it has is a pairing option but I’m seeing reviews of how some lost their remote and then found this app and synced it to their Apple TV,I guess the took out that option then !
